Welcome to the Kwon Research Group

About Us

The Kwon Group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas performs research in surface and interface engineering of polymers with a focus on establishing a fundamental understanding of the interfacial interaction between solids, liquids, and vapor. To achieve this objective, our research efforts have thus far been particularly devoted to tailoring the chemical composition and structure of functional polymers at the molecular, nano-, and micro- length scales to achieve the desired surface and interfacial properties. Particular areas of interest include miscible liquid separations, self-healable surfaces, membranes for oil-water separations, photo-responsive surfaces, and so on.
